A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing
one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.   -CHIN-NING CHU

From the first display of his paintings to the public at age 19, Brian knew his path as an artist had been determined and from that day forward, he has dedicated his life to the creation of things that bring interest, intrigue and beauty to our surroundings.

Largely self taught, Brian's work has taken many forms through the years.  Brian chose his profession over 30 years ago and has worked diligently to articulate his feelings and ideas through the mediums of sculpting, painting, printmaking, photography and poetry.

"I don't believe creativity should be restricted to any one medium. Daily, my mind
                  is filled with ideas of how I might convey my thoughts and beliefs."   -Brian    


Artists of any stripe are inspired by their curiosity, by their desire to explore all quarters of life, in light and in dark, and reflect what they find in their work. Artists instinctively want to reflect humanity, their own and each other's, in all its intermittent virtue and vitality, frailty and fallibility.”    -Tom Hiddleston

In Brian's work there is no provocation, no shock and no pain expressed, as pain is transformed.

"A lesson learned, is a far better message."  - Brian

Brian believes in the importance of affecting his viewers in a positive way. Like most creative types, he's experienced his share of struggles in life and with the world around us, but chooses not to publicly chronicle negativity.  This is not to say work stemming from opinion and societal reflection aren't being created, quite the contrary, they just aren't being labeled or tend to seek an element of positivity. Works depicting a more despondent nature in Brian's extensive body of expression are few and far between but they do exist. What the future may hold? Well that is anyone's guess, after all he is an artist.

Brian is a member of the National Sculpture Society. His work has been featured in numerous newspaper articles, magazines both local and national. He has had One Man Showings through galleries in Scottsdale, Sedona, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Brian's work has been collected by individuals and corporations for decades. He's currently spending all of his time creating sculptural works.

Brian's sculptures are exclusively monumental in nature and suitable for indoor or outdoor display.

The inspiration behind many of Brian's sculptures is narrated by poem or prose, hand written by the artist, then etched into a solid copper plaque accompanying the piece.

With a curiosity for Japanese Puzzle Boxes, Brian always tries to conceal connections or attachment points within his sculptures, and when it is necessary to reveal hardware or a weld he prefers them to be part of the art by making them bold or exaggerated.

"My expression has settled in sculpting as I'd like to create art that is impactful in scope and voice. Art that makes a difference. Art that reaches the widest audience. Art that outlasts my great, great grandchildren".         

"With longevity in mind, I've humbly come to understand the concept that nothing lasts forever. Thus I strive to educate myself in matters of environmental impact on exposed sculptural elements and carefully select materials that are not only esthetically pleasing but that will provide as many years of enjoyment as possible for those viewing it."
"I believe in recycling as much as possible when it comes to my art, I much prefer to utilize sound, used material over new."  - Brian
